    • Dropping car off in Bayeux or Caen

      Bayeux Apr 5, 2014 at 12:21 PM

      We will be driving in Normandy starting from Giverny and ending up in Bayeux. I want to drop the car off in Bayeux and take the train to Paris where we will be staying for 3 nights. The question is can we drop the car off in Bayeux and get a direct train to Paris? I was told Caen would be better since it had more direct trains to Paris but also was told that dropping a car off in Caen can be a nightmare. Can someone advise. Thank You.

    • What hotels are in LaCaserne area?

      by HonorBranch Online Now Aug 30, 2013 at 9:43 AM

      Our group is visiting Mont St. Michel on 9/24/13. I've read some unfavorable comments regarding the crowds and distances people had to walk to get to the shuttle. I also read if you are staying in a hotel/motel in the La Caserne area you can park at your hotel and just walk to shuttle, but you need to get an access code. We have reservations at Hotel Le Beauvoir because we could not get into Hotel le Relais du Roy. Is it in the Lacaserne area, if not, what should we expect? Honor Branch, Baltimore, MD

      I'm sure this has been answered previously and I will certainly seek info from the actual site as my trip gets closer (11/13) but should I take one of the tours of the abbey or just spend a few hours freestyle? I don't want to tie up several hours with a tour---wondering if they offer a variety of tours or one size fits all? Thoughts, anyone? Thank you!

      by bradnwa Online Now Jul 26, 2012 at 6:54 PM

      Most of the hotels appear to be on the road to MSM and unless the room is in the back, could be noisy. Le Beauvoir looks nice but the street view has it on the road. We will have a car.
      Any recommendations would be welcome.

    • Tides at MSM?

      by ebuisson Online Now Jun 27, 2012 at 10:16 AM

      I want to experience MSM with and without the sea water surrounding it. Do I need to base myself on the high tide schedule to pick my day to visit or has the new dam on the Couesnon already (positively) affected the water levels around MSM? I've heard that there are days when you see no difference between low and high tide (i.e., so can experience MSM with little water around it). Hope this post makes sense... and thanks in advance.

    • Info on Mont Saint Michel for a book

      by lifeboats Online Now Apr 9, 2012 at 8:14 AM

      Hi all

      I am hoping that someone out there will be able to help me.

      I am doing some research on Mont Saint Michel for a book and I am hoping that someone will have the info I require. I am unable to get across to MSM until later in the year, but that means the book writing will be held up - so my question to all of you is:

      Are the houses and other buildings in the Village still lived in by the locals or are they all tourist shops/hotels/restaurants?

      If anyone can answer my question, I would be most grateful.

      Thank you.

      Best, fast, cheapest way to travel from Mont Saint-Michel to London.

      by DickLaurent Online Now Apr 1, 2012 at 1:14 PM

      I'm doing my first trip to Paris and London later this year. I'm very interested in visiting Mont Saint-Michel. I was going to take a 14 hour tour from Paris to Mont Saint-Michel and back to Paris. However, I believe the tour bus drive to Mont Saint-Michel is roughly 4 hours long so there and back would make 8 hours of the 14 hour tour driving time.

      I'm considering travelling from Paris to Mont Saint-Michel (via train and bus) and then staying the night there and then somehow travelling from Mont Saint-Michel to London to finish my vacation. Does anyone have any advice on this? It seems like travelling from Paris to Mont Saint-Michel to London would be faster then travelling from Paris to Mont Saint-Michel then back to Paris and then on to London.

      What would be the best, fast, cheapest way to travel from Mont Saint-Michel to London?

      We will be at a wedding in Granville in early July and would like to visit Mont Saint Michel on one of our spare days. We're taking a train to Granville from Paris so we will not have a car.

      Does anyone know the best way to get to MSM from Granville using train/bus? Is it a big hassle to get there without a car? If necessary I could look into renting a car, but if public transit is easy enough, I would prefer that.
